Have to wear a school uniform this year? Want to stand out and make it your own? We dug up some of our favorite looks on Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf, Serena van der Woodsen, and Jenny Humphrey back in their days at Constance Billard.
To get the ideas for their looks, costume designer Eric Daman studied how Upper East Side private school girls “tricked out” their uniforms with accessories like bags, shoes, tights, etc. What he came up with some of the most iconic fashion looks on TV.
Here’s your back-to-school shopping guide for accessorizing school uniforms, inspired by Gossip Girl:
- Cute headbands
- Colorful tights
- A statement bag
- Hats (for bad hair days and when you’re feeling funky)
- Fun necklaces and bracelets
